Fantastic Car Ride Companion

Our lake home is about 4 hours away. We started listening to Business Wars a few weeks ago on our trips to and from, and have thoroughly enjoyed the episodes that we have listened to. We are curious about how and why things are and how they became to be. This podcast satisfies that thirst for knowledge in a fun and enlightening way. Well done.

The waze vs Apple maps episode was interesting enough, but then it became clear that the episode was just a really long ad read for Lincoln cars. Don’t insult your listener’s intelligence like that... if you’re going to do an ad read, just do an ad read. Don’t try to “sneak it in” as a key feature of the story.
